Patina provided a Patina Professional to develop a culture assessment for a new CEO and create a road map for how to develop a better culture, including managing the change process very carefully. The goal was to change the culture to more accountability, transparency and trust — and to do so in a relatively short period of time.
High-Potential Program Development
A manufacturer had lost a few high-potential leaders to other employers. The company had never had a formal high-potential system in place, and now the leadership team knew they needed help creating one. After a thorough assessment and many interviews, our Patina Professional developed a robust system to identify, teach, mentor and retain the leaders of the future who are looking for some commitment to their ongoing development.
Interim OD Executive
A financial services firm had lost its Organizational Development leader to a sudden illness right in the middle of the CEO's key initiative to improve the succession planning in the firm. Knowing it would take many months to conduct a search, the company turned to Patina for an interim executive. This solution allowed them to take their time and make sure they made the right hire.
When you need an experienced professional, or team of professionals, to execute and/or manage a special project or key initiative, you can trust Patina to provide the right solution. We match your needs with talented executives who have done it before.
When a key position must be filled on an interim basis, Patina has the proven resources to help.

This is the most objective and confidential way to implement mentoring and coaching.
